Oak Parkers who would rather share a car than own one have two choices. Zipcar, a for-profit, international car sharing company, and not-for-profit I-GO both offer programs in Oak Park.
Zipcar has vehicles in three Oak Park public parking locations — 438 S. Taylor, at the corner of Madison and Taylor streets; 1118 North Blvd.; and 300 South Blvd.
I-GO has cars at 833 S. Euclid Ave., near the corner of Harrison Street and Oak Park Avenue; 715 South Blvd.; 331 N. Harlem Ave.; 632 S. Austin Blvd.; 18 Lake St.; and at Village Hall, 123 Madison St. Both companies allow users to reserve cars online by the hour, anytime of the day or night. Hourly rates include gas, insurance, reserved parking spaces and all vehicle maintenance. For more information, or to apply for membership, visit www.igocars.org or www.zipcar.com.
